What inspired the drink?
You know those hot firefighter calendars? This tastes like July; sweet and smoky’. It is perfect as a cocktail for a barbecue with lamb spiedini.
The cocktail’s colour is orange inspired by the Mionetto brand.
The cream gives the cocktail the rich texture of an Italian soda.
The cold pressed carrot juice is earthy and reminiscent of Italian terroir.
The sweet potato vodka adds strength and body.
The fennel fronds, torn from fennel which is native to Italy, highlight the notes of anise in the Prosecco.
The smoke is the final element which mellows the sweetness.
